It is well known that almost 70% of energy of fuel is wasted as thermal energy in the case of gasoline engine vehicle. Utilizing the thermal energy to provide electric power for automobile instead of using the engine driven alternator, we can reduce the load for the alternator and save fuel. Thermoelectric generator can convert the thermal energy to electric energy directly. In order to realize the generator, it is necessary to increase the conversion efficiency of the thermoelectric material and to increase the heat transfer from exhaust gas to the thermoelectric module.
